A report by Bruce Levine stated the Cubs were looking for a defensive CF in a trade before the deadline and now will look for a defensive OF through the waiver period.
The Cubs look at different outfielders that can play good defense and 1 was Oakland's Rajah Davis. The did not care if they can hit but just see if they can play good in the field. Jim Hendry also contacted the Royals about Mark Teahen but they did not show much interest in trading Teahen.
Hot Stove Cubbies is reporting he is hearing the Cubs might put Aaron Miles, Milton Bradley, Mike Fontenot, Jeff Baker, Aaron Heilman on waivers to see if they draw interest.
Jim Hendry worked the phones to tweak his bench up until the deadline but everything decent was radically overpriced according to David Kaplan.
Tom Gorzolanny will be brought up Saturday from Triple A Iowa and start Tuesday for the Cubs.
The Cubs called up OF Sam Fuld from Triple A Iowa and sent P Mitch Atkins back to Triple A.
BJ Ryan pitched for Iowa Cubs yesterday and pitched 1.2 innings, giving up 1 walk and struck out 1.
